Best executive set lunches in Singapore
Fast (luxe) food
In a world where time is money, it's hard to afford a long, languid lunch. Of course, we don't mean going off the rail to schedule a business meeting at Maccas. That's not exactly the fast food we had in mind. What you need is a presentable meal (i.e. evident food plating), where no one needs to worry about the complex dynamics of sharing portions or waste time deliberating the chance of dessert. So let these snappy, fuss-free set lunches be of service.
Apart fom sating their crowd with delicious cocktails, the grandiose plaza that is ATLAS also serves up an ever-changing set lunch. This July and August, the theme is Italian — more specifically Piedmont, Italy's second largest region. Expect indulgent plates like cold sliced veal to start with and for moreish mains, rainbow trout in herb butter sauce. There's also a wine pairing option, if you're up for it.
$38 for two courses or $48 for three courses
Time window: 11.30am-3pm
24 levels off the lobby of Shangri-La Hotel is where Nami resides. The prestigious Japanese restaurant has always been revered for stellar omakase and exceptional sashimi, and has now recently rolled out a new set lunch menu. Grounded in the unami flavours of dashi, the tantalising choices are simple and straight to the point — pan-fried beef in dashi sauce coupled with dashi-flavoured rice, soba in mackerel dashi broth and udon in sardine dashi broth. Each set comes lavished with seasonal appetisers, chawanmushi and assorted tempura. Tray of dreams? We think so.
$35 ++ per set
Time window: 12pm-2pm

This July, choose from courses like Scottish blue mussels, lamb racks, and a souffle made with white miso and vanilla.

The bustling multi-concept venue takes on many hats. From breakfast to-gos to dinner and drinks, this spot has it all. Come lunch, diners can opt for a delightful dynamic — one that's anchored in European techniques and tweaked with Asian flavours. Our favourites from the lot? The baby squid and local skate fish with pearl rice risotto. Also, leave room for dessert. We hear they have licorice root ice-cream.
